RHS Production of Silent Sky Opening Tonight!
Silent Sky by Lauren Gunderson opens at 7:30 tonight, Thursday, January 23rd, in the Black Box Theatre of Ridgefield High School.
The true story of early 20th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt, Silent Sky explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discovery when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta Leavitt and her female peers believed in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
Silent Sky will have four additional evening performances, January 24th, 25th, 31st, and February 1 at 7:30 pm, with snow dates of January 26 and February 2 at 2:00pm.
All tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door. Ridgefield seniors who have a Gold Card may enjoy one show for free but must have the Gold Card with them for admission.
